For the interest of Google Android Phone, I’d like to jump over this domain for a while.

Just over a month, I’ve found Google Android really got the potential to attract developers to his creation. Nowadays, there are lots of applications, games, media created for Android Mobile. Apparently, it comes to a fact that I’m falling in love with it, even though I don’t have much experiences with Java before. However, it brings me the easiness, techies, satisfaction and sexiness while playing around!

In facts, I’m a newbie to Google Android, but I like to share what I’ve learned and studied to others.Free to share, free to take!

Hope my blog and my posts will help and support lots of you, who are also newbies like me 🙂

This is how I organize my blog structure:

[ Tutorials ] – a list of all tutorial articles, instruction step-by-step.

[ Tricks & Tips ] – a list of all little hot quick tricks that helps you around in difficulties.

[ Design Patterns ] – a list of technical patterns & UI patterns that helps you to create a better applications.

[ Books & Materials ] – list of good books and materials for Android developers.

[ Libraries ] – all good stuffs you might need for development

[ Links ] – a lots of useful links, web-pages for references, guideline, learning, re-searching and supporting…etc

Especially, the category Tools on the right menu will show down a list of cool software, tools & utilities.

    Hi pete, can you please help with the colorization using optimization. I’ve read your tutorials thought so ask something. when I try to convert my RGB image into YUV format either it becomes white or my application crashes, need some guidance. I also searched on stack overflow.
    this is the link

    Hi Pete

    I have been having an issue for the last 2 days straight with trying to get the seekBar working with your Brightness tutorial. I have it working and it adjusts the brightness of my image fine but I can’t get it to work smoothly.

    I have made a question on Stack overflow about it, would you be able to help? if you can, that would be fantastic! 🙂

    I visited your blog and is pretty useful for a newbie.

    I work for a company called Appemble. The vision of the company is “Just Assemble Apps”. App writers can code majority of the app using XML. And the same code base will drive Android and iOS apps.

    Complex controls like Charts can be incorporated in an android/ios app with few lines of XML by providing the data set and attributes that define the look n feel for the chart.

    This video “Introducing Mobile Application Development using XML” (http://youtu.be/eK7rk9HdwHA) is a good introduction.

    We are inviting developers to create plugins for UI Elements (for ex. Android Slide Menu) or integration points (for ex. integration to Flickr). Using these plugins, app writers can build apps faster. The plugins will have a price and you can monetize on them later.

    We can talk more if you are little interested.
